Caption: Insect foot. Coloured electron micrograph (SEM) of an unidentified insect's foot. The foot consists of adhesive pads (red, upper left and right) and a pair of hooked claws (centre right and centre left). The pads are used for walking on smooth surfaces, while the claws are used on rough surfaces that they can grip.
